Mostly deciduous trees during the warm months. As a rough approximation, deciduous trees appear broader and brighter. Pine trees appear “finer” and a duller dark green, although that probably does not characterize all of them. Orange arrows point to the more prominent deciduous trees. Purple arrows indicate some of the interspersed pine trees. As a check, I found this place and located the pine tree shown by the far right purple arrow and the deciduous trees beside that pine tree. While I would include this deciduous forest as having possible Tulip Poplar trees, in fact I think, there were not very many. Soon I’ll know for sure. Recently this section of woods was clear cut, logged until nothing was left standing. In a couple years, the Tulip Poplars will sprout back quickly from their old stumps. Then it is easy to count the lost trees, and even to estimate the gallons of lost nectar.
